NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

This week is National Volunteer Week! To recognize the tireless work of volunteers that support the nonprofit sector, we’ll be publishing a blog post every day this week to celebrate their contributions. Today we give a hearty THANK YOU to our 501 Tech Club leaders.

This week is National Volunteer Week! Points of Light, the organization that established this program in 1974, says "National Volunteer Week is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change – discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to make a difference."

To recognize the tireless work of volunteers that support the nonprofit sector, we’ll be publishing a blog post every day this week to celebrate their contributions. Today we're giving a big thank-you to the dedicated members of NTEN's committees.

The 9th Annual Bridge to Integrated Marketing and Fundraising Conference is coming this July 9-11 to the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. We're proud to partner with the Bridge Conference, and encourage you to take advantage of special registration rates for NTEN community members.

This week is National Volunteer Week! To recognize the tireless work of volunteers that support the nonprofit sector, we’ll be publishing a blog post every day this week to celebrate their contributions. We're kicking off Monday with a shout out to NTEN’s Community of Practice leaders.

The Rob Stuart Memorial Award honors the spirit of the man who was so pivotal in creating our community. Rob was a builder - of communities, of ideas, and of movements. Central to all of this work was the idea that technology can accelerate the pace of change, making it possible for movements to grow overnight and for change to be created in new and surprising ways.

NTEN isn't an organization, we're a community – a community with a shared set of values, including authenticity, sharing, and of course, laughter. Each year at the Nonprofit Technology Conference, we get the chance to celebrate one individual – of the many! – who embodies those values and enhances the NTEN community. These individuals, recipients of the annual NTEN Award, are the people working hard to move NTEN's mission forward from within the community: always ready to share a case study, idea, or contact. 

The NTEN community is filled with amazing individuals who change the world every day. Each year, we honor an individual who has been instrumental in shaping the field of nonprofit technology, and paved the way for the rest of us. Past winners have had a hand in creating and funding the biggest organizations in our space, built nonprofit technology communities large and small, and are exploring and sharing some of the most interesting and innovative technology models.
